Calseraigne Island, where the mermaids aka Monk seals used to hang out off the coast of Marseille. This island guide says the last specimen died in 1950, hopefully just on this island as the Natural History museum says there are still a few rogue ones out there. Has anyone out there seen a Mediterranean monk seal? #mediterraneansea #monkseal #endangeredspecies #marseille #mermaid #marseille #Calseraigne #Island #cotedazur ... See MoreSee Less

The Mediterranean Monk seal #monachus once frolicked abundantly along the CΓ΄te d'Azure and beyond. A few hundred remain in existence, exiled to the remote islands of Greece. If sea otters can make a comeback from 300.... maybe these guys could pull off the same feat? #seals #mediterraneansea #endangeredspecies #skeleton #monkseal #cotedazur #marseille ...

For a long time the oceans represented a place of menacing fantastical creatures. The #Mucem in Marseille is doing a temp exposition on sea faring adventurers of the VII-XVII centuries and there are SO MANY creative renditions of sea beasts! Highly recommend it for all sea beast enthusiasts!! πŸ’•πŸ³πŸ™πŸ¦ˆ this one is titled "Monstres Marines entourant un Naivre" 1594-1598.

This is the exact place where scuba was invented and perfected, its glorious! Consequently, wetsuits were created here for the first time too. #scuba #calanques #marseille #france #cotedazur ... See MoreSee Less
